The BCCI’s much anticipated Annual General Meeting (AGM) will not be held in September, the board decided in an informal meeting on Sunday.

Instead, there will be a Working Committee meet on September 26, which means the AGM is unlikely to be held on the scheduled date September 30 as the rule demands a gap of three weeks between the two meetings.

The informal meeting on Sunday was in support of N Srinivasan who has been forced to step aside from the post of BCCI president due to the ongoing inquiry in the IPL spot-fixing case.

All the 21 members present at the informal meet vouched to support Sirnivasan for the post of president. On Sunday, it was the East zone’s turn to nominate the president and it unanimously backed him for the post.

But the official president will be decided at the AGM, whenever it takes place.

The members are of the view that the AGM should not take place before the Mudgal committee submits its report about the spot-fixing and betting case to the Supreme Court in the first week of November.
